In this video, we're going to be working with our 2006 Chrysler 300. We're going to show you how to remove and replace as well as reset the clock in the dashboard. If you like this video, please click "subscribe". We have a ton more information on this vehicle, as well as many other makes and models. If you ever need parts for your car, you can follow the link down in the description over to 1AAuto.com.Here are the items you will need for this repair.

In order to access some of these parts, we'll have to remove this dash panel here. Fortunately, with this trim removal tool, available from 1AAuto.com we can get this plastic piece out without worrying about damaging any of the other interior pieces. All you've got to do is get behind it, and pry out. There's clips all the way along the side, so just keep moving up little by little, prying it out. Now we can slide this forward and access the electrical connectors at the back. All you’ve got to do is push down and release the tabs. Over here has got one of those red safeties which, actually, is another great use for this tool. Just pop that little tab out and release the connector. We'll move on to these ones up here. You have you ESP and hazard switch as well as the little electrical connection for the clock.

To remove your clock, use a 4mm socket, ratchet, and extension and remove the two little screws on either side. Be very careful not to lose those. They are tiny. Keep your hand on the back of the clock when you're removing the second bolt. The easiest way to not lose this is to pull it out while you're turning the bolt. That way, when our clock comes out, the bolt stays right there.

Reinstall the clock into the bezel. Tighten down your two 4mm screws with your socket and ratchet. Since we have the bezel out, we can just hold this upright, and lay it in there, nice and easy. These are just tiny screws going into plastic, so I'm barely even using my fingers to turn the ratchet. Once I can't turn it with two fingers, that's it: we go on to the next one.

Once you've tightened up all of the four millimeter screws we can reinstall the dash panel into the vehicle. Now, it's a little bit easier to connect the bottom first. We'll start by reconnection the HVAC. All these connectors are different sizes. You can't really mix them up. Don't forget the little red clip that goes in the big connector here. Just slide that in, lock it into place and that keeps it from falling out. Reconnect the ESP and hazard switch at the top center and the light switch all the way at the top for our clock. Set the panel back into the dash. Just press around the edges until everything sits into place and everything is where it should be.

To reset your clock, it's very simple. Right now it's three o'clock even. Holding the button will get the clock to move. You can let on and off because it'll speed up as you hold it longer. Just a couple of taps and it's three o'clock.
